Rowan joy Real Brides October 2016 - Lauren, Alison, Hannah and Lauren.

Lauren had initially come to see me to try on the Bloom 2 piece for her wedding, she loved it and decided to wear it for the evening and commissioned a bespoke ballet length dress for the day. Lauren chose a classic shape with a sweetheart neckline and nipped in waist with a v neckline on the front and back. A fabulous sequinned lace was chosen for the dress which created a really fun, modern look. The bloom co-ords were kept as the original with the top made slightly more tailored to suit Lauren's shape. I love that Lauren went for the 2 different looks for the day and night and that she will get lots of use from her Bloom pieces after the wedding.

Lauren chose the Ella dress from the made to measure range for her wedding dress. The shape of the dress was kept as the original but Lauren chose a beaded lace with gold thread for the details on the shoulders and back which looked fab with the ivory of the dress. I love how gorgeous and relaxed Lauren looks in the dress.

Hannah was the second of my lovely American brides in 2016 and got married at the glorious Crear on the west coast of Scotland. She found me after looking at previous brides of mine who had been married at Crear and being inspired by one of their dress styles. She chose a fifties style dress with a 3/4 sleeve made from a blush pink silk and ivory lace layered over the top. I never got to meet Hannah whilst making her dress so it was lovely to get the photos through and see her looking so gorgeous in her dress.

Alison was the first of my gorgeous, bold brides in red and my gosh it is worth being brave brides because it looks incredible. Alison loved the Chloe dress style as soon as she tried it on and when she asked about the possibility of having it made in red, I was all in. I sourced a gorgeous beaded red lace to combine with the silk crepe and the style itself was kept as the original just with the addition of covered buttons to finish off the back. Alison chose some of my favourite suppliers to work with - the wonderful Di from Myrtle and Bracken to create her stunning flowers and the super Gillian from pin up hair to create her gorgeous relaxed up do which complements the dress perfectly.
